They also have another brother who you might recognise from Love Island 2016. Success and good looks run in their family!
2. Jamie Lomas and Charley Webb.
We’re used to seeing Jamie Lomas in Hollyoaks and he took part in the most recent series of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here. But I bet you didn’t know he also has a famous sister. He isn’t the only one in his family who’s decided to take up a career in acting. His sister Charley Webb has starred in Emmerdale as Debbie Dingle since 2002.
And it appears their younger sibling, Danny Webb, played the first ever Aaron Livesy in Emmerdale between 2003 to 2006 and Lucy Webb, 13, appeared as baby Jon Dingle between 2004 and 2007 when she was tiny.
The acting gene definitely runs in their family.
3. Joe and Shauna Swash.
Joe Swash became a household name when he starred in Eastenders between 2005 and 2011 as Mickey Miller. His sister Shauna also appeared in the show as his on-screen sister Demi.
While Shauna has gone down a different route in like, Joe is still a regular on our TV screens, after becoming King of the jungle in 2008, he’s gone on to present Extra Camp among other shows.
4. Nick and John Pickard.
When you think of Hollyoaks, you think of Tony Hutchinson, don’t you. And for a long time, Nick’s brother played his long-lost brother in the soap. After his character met his long-lost brother on-screen there was only one man for the job…
Between 2005 and 2010, John played Tony’s brother Dom. You can definitely tell they’re related, can’t you!
